In an interview with arguably the most respected journalist around in Jorge Ramos, former Mexican President Vicente Fox (from 2000 to 2006) didn’t just get a little gruff about the idea of the Wall of Trump ensconcing the northern border of Mexico… he got mad.
When asked about the idea by Ramos for Univision’s Al Punto, Fox bowed up, spoke up, and hurled a flammable eff bomb:
“I’m not going to pay for that f***ing wall! He should pay for it.”
“He’s got the money… Democracy can not take that, crazy people that don’t know what is going on in the world today. This worries me, the last caucus in Nevada… he won 44 percent of Hispanics.”
He then went on plead with his brethren about what his happening in the GOP race:
“Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in the U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. Not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy,” Fox told Fusion.
FMR PRES of Mexico, Vicente Fox horribly used the F word when discussing the wall. He must apologize! If I did that there would be a uproar!

It’s ironic that Trump is taking the opportunity to ask a man to apologize for the eff bomb when speaking his mind, when Trump indirectly called Ted Cruz “a pussy.” Dude didn’t flinch, didn’t get slammed, and didn’t apologize.
Double standard? Definitely.
Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón also spoke out against Trump’s plan. He told CNBC there’s no way Mexicans are going to pay for a “stupid wall.” But since he said “stupid,” he didn’t get the wrath of Trump’s Twitter.
